Hi everyone,

So I got 20 x 5ft T8's 58w (5400lm) for next to nothing and they seemed ideal
due to my growing space which is only 1m high but i'm able to dig out for pots
so i'll still have 1m grow room, strange i know but it's what I have to work with.
Why T8's? Got them cheap and given the current height restrictions, they will work.
I will be growing short, high yield auto's with 'low stress training', completely
organic. I have 30 seeds and 30 8-10L pots, I chose smaller pots to restrict the height.

I've grown before but never with fluorescent

Any positive or constructive input would be greatly appreciated

I have limited experience with T8s but I'm quite sure 30 plants is too many. Lumens might make sense but the penetration is pretty weak and with that many plants, i don't think they'll get enough light. Perhaps reflectors would help but i wish i knew how?
